The Confucian Society was established in 1929 by leaders of the Chinese Constitutionalist Democratic Party (CCDP) for the
purpose of uniting the Chinese community in the U.S. with orthodox Confucianism. As a peripheral organization to the CCDP,
the society operated the Kung Gow or Confucian School in San Francisco.
